As concerns about the availability of natural resources and living in a healthy environment increase, so has the interest in sustainable design and construction that reduces the use of non-renewable resources while improving a building's performance. We have been at the forefront of this effort developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), which is comprised of industry trend makers who support environmentally responsible building.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) is the "nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings." Our more than 70 LEED Accredited Professionals have proven experience in navigating the client and project team successfully through the LEED Certification process.
To achieve LEED certification, buildings must meet stringent design and construction guidelines. We are familiar with this process and have been awarded certification for many projects. Flintco's commitment to green construction through early adoption and ongoing education on emerging techniques and products has resulted in buildings that are in sync with the environment as well as the owner's needs.
We are also a leading member of the ABC Green Contractor Certification Program which involves developing a sustainable workplace environment. This includes internal programs for recycling and education, as well as efficiency and sustainability policies that have set the bar within the construction industry.
